    Check the classifieds! Or, are you referring to a specific one?

    Ok im gonna look today and tomorrow for a holster for this locally. If I cant find one any suggestions? Kydex or leather and im more of a minimalist..normally for my last 2 guns I used the RM Kydex and love it...right now I just need it quicker than 3-4 weeks though as id like to start CC this ASAP..but like I said im gonna look local next 2 days then order something if I cant find something decent locally..just dont want a 3-4 week wait though.

    If it comes to it I can just order one on Amazon and have it here in probably 2-3 days..

    Good job. I find the single stack Glocks very easy to carry and I picked up a 48 a short while back. I had kind of gotten away from Glocks for carry but this one fits my hands so well it is hard to leave at home sometimes.

    Sometimes when I want a holster in just a few days I'll find one on an auction site and buy that one. If the holster is pre made, it usually comes within four or five days, and then if I want something a little more top tier, I can go ahead and put in an order. Carry while you wait for the better holster.

    I think the little singe stack Glocks are too narrow. I know that’s nuts but maybe I have big hands. I find the standard grip about perfect. I own many small single stack guns and I carry a G19. Whatever works best is the best idea. Just an observation. Sometimes slim is too slim.

    Not for me owning a Glock 23 for about 3 years made me a non Glock owner..the overly fat and odd grip angle Glocks and my hands are just no good..this one however and all the single stacks feel awesome in my hands....and oddly Glocks double stacks are the only ones that feel like that for me... at work we had the Ruger P series..by no means a "small" gun or grip...that was fine..then we switched to the S&W full size M&P...again..no issues... the Glock plop a doubel stack Glock in my hand and it cants off slightly to the right and ends up on recoil killing my thumb kniuckle by the webbing..oh sure I can keep readjusting my grip and get it to set right for a while..but should I HAVE to keep doing that..I finally camp up with no, I shouldnt lol..so I just went with the single stacks..

    Congrats on the 43x!!!!!!

    I started using the Galco "Stinger" on the recommendation from my son-in-law.
    He's used it for his off-duty carry.

    I like that holster!!
    I carry at 4:00 and it holds the pistol high and tight against my body.

    I have one now for my Shield .40; G26; G19/23.

    The Don Hume JIT-Slide is a good holster, too.

    Look at Bravo Concealment on line. They have a two for one sale right now where you can get an IWB and an OWB holster for about $52. Great product too.

    I've got a spare Gunfighter's Inc Ronin OWB in black that I used with my 43 that I can part with at a reasonable price. PM me if you are interested.

    ETA ah I see you must have found one.

    It was only 7 yards..I concentrate mostly at 3/7/10.....I didnt show you the patheticness of the 15+ :)..they would hit you but looked more like a shotgun at 25 yards lol...old eyes I guess...

    But I struggle still to find a realistic scenario for ME..where id be actively shooting past 15 yards and I tend to concentrate more on the more realistic point blank(retention) to 3/5/7/10 yards

    I think mostly for a NON LEO in a neighborhood type situation that 15 and under is about your sweet spot...I measured in my house and 25 feet 8.3 yards is the furthest clear sightline...and outside I cant see a realistic scenario where im engaging guys past 15 yards... Oh sure some off the wall stuff could happen..but I seldom put led down range with pistols' anymore past 15-25 tops

    Oh and I am still getting back used to the Glock trigger, from the SR9c(a MUCH MUCH better trigger) it was hard..I could shoot 200-250 when ammo was plentiful in a session with the SR9c...The 43X trigger made my trigger finger sore/raw after about 100 rounds so I never did shoot my 3rd box of ammo lol..
